Fulham striker Petric happy to get on scoresheet in defeat to Man City
The joy was overshadowed by Eden Dzeko's late winner for the champions at Craven Cottage.
"It's always good for a striker to score," he said. "Of course I'm happy to have scored, but not happy because we lost.
"Second half, we were too deep and they had a lot of possession. We had to be a bit braver. We defended very well, but in the end they scored. That's sport.
"It was hard today because they are very very good, but we let them play."
